In episode 4 of the FortyFive politics podcast we talked about new legislation by Senator Mike Lee which would greatly reduce the federal gasoline tax. We also were joined by Utah County Commissioner Bill Lee who spoke to us about the history and future of Bus Rapid Transit in Utah County and some of the problems with it. We also briefly talked about term limits in Utah, Rick Santorum’s event with one attendee, Democrats growing impatience with Justin Miller, Attorney General Sean Reyes’ campaign donations, and Jerry Seinfeld’s comments that young people are too politically correct.
